International Fuel Technology Inc. (IFT) has unveiled a fuel blend, Texas Diesel-1 (TD-1), for the Texas marketplace.

IFT has received notification from the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality that TD-1 meets specifications for CARB diesel, and therefore qualifies as low emission diesel (LED) in the State of Texas.

The company said the use of TD-1 will enable diesel fuel suppliers to comply with the Texas Low-Emission Diesel Fuel Program, which mandates all diesel fuel sold in 110 affected counties in central and eastern Texas meet LED specifications beginning in 2005.

TD-1 will be distributed to the greater Houston area by Ada Resources Inc., which will bring TD-1 to the Houston market immediately through the Texas Emissions Reduction Program.
